Getting Started Guide for Rowan Global Online and Hybrid Faculty using Canvas
Posted by Anna Wright on 16 November 2012 09:24 AM

Note: Rowan Online is a division of Rowan Global Learning & Partnerships. This guide is for Rowan Global faculty teaching online and hybrid courses—not LMS-requested courses.

At Rowan Online at Rowan University, we focus on providing faculty with the resources to effectively develop and create an online or hybrid course based on the content and activities of your traditional face-to-face course. Our resources currently include articles in our Knowledgebase, as well as one-on-one training with your assigned Instructional Designer. With many of these resources accessible 24/7, we hope to hope to empower you to learn at your own pace, and ultimately to better facilitate the development and instruction of your course in Canvas.

      • Do you want any exams administered online in your course in Canvas? If so, as an instructor, you must organize and format the exam questions in Microsoft Word according to the formatting guide (see How do I format an exam for Respondus?).
      • Once you've formatted the exam for Respondus, email any exams you want administered online in your course to your assigned Instructional Designer (see How is the exam exported into the LMS using Respondus?). Be sure to follow and meet the deadlines listed in your Course Development Schedule, as well as settings for the test (i.e. date and time availability, point values, etc).
